E*Trade is actually in on the deal and offering to clients. I put in an order for the wife's IRA. (She uses it more than I do. LOL).
I thought Schwab, TD Ameritrade, etc were going to get an allotment, too,
The main guys are Morgan Stanley, Goldman, JPM, Merrill and Barclays. So if you have an account with them you can certainly ask.

In any case, it won't be cheap. It's supposed to price between 28 and 35. I'm hoping lower and that my wife actually gets some.
